Conspiracies and strange things
(Before It's News) by Zen Gardner
Censorship is the suppression of public communication that is considered to be objectionable, harmful or sensitive. Many different types of censorship exist, including moral, military, political, religious and corporate. Project Censored is a research group that tracks the news published in independent journals and newsletters.
Strange and bizarre news stories are fun to read. People are intrigued by world events that are shrouded in mystery. In many cases, the strange occurrences give the reader a conflict between what is presumed normal in society, and the facts of the case.
In the near future, Earth could be faced with the threat of severe atmospheric activity, including solar explosions, near Earth asteroids, and geological anomalies.
Ancient aliens is the idea that aliens visited earth in the past. The idea of ancient aliens is not a new one either. Imagination is one of the most powerful tools in humanity’s evolutionary struggle for survival.
Pejoratives are words or phrases that bring out contempt or distaste in the human psyche.
A witness is someone who has firsthand knowledge about an event. An expert witness is a person who, by virtue of education, training or experience, is believed to have expertise in a particular area. A different type of witness is an eyewitness, who is a person that saw a specific event first hand. A witness can be extremely important for court proceedings.
Conspiracy theories – I can’t get enough of them! Fortunately there are so many floating about that we have been able to give you not one , not two , but now three lists of theories that many people believe with all their might. Be sure to read the earlier lists if you haven’t already and feel free to add any conspiracies missing from all three to the comments here.
In the past we have published four complete lists of mainstream conspiracy theories – a subject which is always popular. This time we are adding a list of theories that are held by a much smaller number of people (which, fortunately for us, results in some slightly more bizarre ideas).
This is our third place winner in the Listverse launch competition. This list looks at 10 more conspiracy theories that may, or may not, link to various theories Listverse has already covered. By popular demand, here are 10 awesome examples of governmental cover-ups, global cataclysms on the verge of occurrence, and supernatural shenanigans that defy explanation. Read, if you dare, but keep an eye over your shoulder: Someone may be watching…
Paranoia strikes deep.
Rapidly catching up to our unsolved mysteries lists is our series on conspiracy theories. Thanks to the hard work of FlameHorse we now have fifty complete conspiracy theories listed on the site. This is likely to be the last in the series for quite some time.
To date we have around seven conspiracy theory lists or lists containing entries related to such. This new list is a welcome addition as it has been some time since our last one and they are always extremely fascinating topics to read about. The world is full of conspiracy theories – many of which contain elements of mystery. This will definitely not be the last list of this type.
